    Imagine a 130 Commercial version. Although there is still doubt when the 130 may appear - if at all. Think JLR will first observe sales figures of the 90 and 110.

    there are plenty of "commercial" vehicles all over the world with rear "passenger" doors (even sliding doors) that can be used to assist in the loading (in and out) of cargo.

    The old Hardtop version was very popular here by us.

    Some guys cut a walk trough to the cab instead of one climbing over.
    The Hardtops are 3 seaters, and is actually a pick up with a factory fitted canopy open to the cab.
    Nice feature on new Defender is to have doors, to access your fridge on a slide etc etc.
    I will anyway remove the centre seat.
    Than fit a 2 nd row single seat at he back , for the rare occasions of having somebody else as a passenger.
    My kids will soon graduate , and they can then buy their own Land Rover.

    What makes it looks good for me, it will be the entry level spec , hopefully with air suspension option, yes I am sold on air suspension , especially for off the beaten track touring and towing.
    Buy as my company vehicle , claim the 15% back, depreciate its value every year against the taxman and have a 5door vehicle, which I can make and change into station wagon, camper or even a pickup with enclosed sides with 5 doors as desired for what I am going to do that specific holiday.
    Dammit that sounds practical.

    Ps, and launch my ski boat for year after year, park it on the beach, the whole day like my D3 for last 15 yrs , with NO RUST like my buddies in their new Hi Luxes , with rust spots on top of their widscreen , not EVEN 2 YRS OLD, told by agents it is abuse and they wont fix it under warranty,ek lag vir hulle. Have to admit the D3 are much much better against rust as the old Tdi and TD5 Defenders were.

    I'm in CapeTown and LR are huge around and I haven't seen a single new Defender on the road yet.

    The salesperson did say that they are not allowed to take them on the road until the 10th, not sure why

    I was actually pleasantky surprised this morning.

    It is a comfortable high tech vehicle in a rugged looking package.

    It is not in the discovery 5 class it is much more practical.

    I like the size not to big but spacious enough inside

    Not a lot of packing space.

    It is creating a new class. Nothing compares. Much more comfortable than a jeep wrangler, much more high tech than a FJ much more practical than any current Landrover

    I wonder what a demo would sell for in a years time?
